Matt Hoyle-Makes Dirty and Creepy Cool
Wow, where to begin with this howdy-doodie mother-fella? You know that look that certain films, and TV shows have? Well, most of them have it now. It’s this appearance of the actors that makes them look really amazing, even if they are hideous, but they seem to glow and it’s completely engaging. Matt Hoyle is a fine example of how that is done. He is a NY based photographer and he is best known for his very saturated portraits. I say saturated because these portraits are up close, exposing, dirty, smokey, tarnished, different, and real people. And not just that, but he applies a certain ‘grade’ to the images, the same grade used in film and TV production, giving each image a heightened sense of story and feel, while still retaining the true identity of the person. Take a stroll through his extensive portfolio and see what other work he has done, contributing to health care, advertising, and editorials.
